Great site!!!
I lived in Hampstead for most of my childhood and especially remember all of the older fire engines that were on-line. The "Historical" photos section that you have posted is one of my favorites sites. It brought back some great memories of how wonderful the town of Hampstead still is. Good luck to all and keepup the great work. Also, congratulations to Richard Yingling for making Chief. I went to school with him when I lived there.

I lived in Hampstead from 1956 until 1974. I looked at the historical pictures and remember Doug Bare very well. When we were in the 5th grade at Hampstead Elementary he would jump up out of his seat at the sound of the siren. If he is still around, tell him I said hi.
Another picture of the Miss Fire Protection said unknown, she was my neighbor on Upper Beckleysville Rd., I know her last name was Baker. I'm sure someone has brought this to your attention before.

Also Jay Anderson was the Assistant Scout Master for Troop 344. I'am amazed at the growth of Hampstead since I left, I try to get up there at least once a year. Well keep up the good work.

Hello, my name is Jason Howard and I live right up the street at 4120 Upper Beckleysville Rd. On May 11th of 2006 @ 5:15pm I was hit head on by a drunk driver at 482 and Brilhart Mill Rd. You good folks along with Manchester's folks saved my life and my right leg which was pretty much trashed in the accident.
Pete (sorry cant remember last name) Dave Newman and Wayne Vandoman were the medics that cared for me "among others I am sure", I got a chance to meet them after my accident and had the opportunity to thank them. I met Pete again a few months ago when he took my daughter to CCGH from Shiloh when she had a feberal seizure. Now everyone in our household has gotten a ride in the past 5 years.

On a side note, my wife (Terri) and I had tried for about 8 years to have a child, at one time we got close but my wife had a tube burst that almost killed her. We gave up not long after that and decided we were getting to old to have children anyway. Well 2 weeks after your good people saved me, my wife confirmed that she was pregnant. My little girl (Gracie Ray Howard) was born January 19th of 07'

I simply cant tell you how grateful I feel right now as I write this, to know that my little girl was almost without having a father, and my wife without having a husband, not to mention I would have missed out on the one thing I knew I always wanted....

I tried to send you a Christmas card but the info@ mailbox is full.

p.s. I notice that your News postings on your website don't go back as far as my accident date. If you have any photos of the accident I would like to have copies if at all possible. I know it seems like a strange request but I don't remember much short of my ride to shock trauma. If I could have video of my surgeries I would have them as well, so you see I'm just curious and a little weird I guess. Thanks!

After working in Chattanooga and Knoxville, Tennessee for 7 years, I enjoyed the opportunity to return to the community I was raised in this Spring. I enjoyed the many activities and traditions I had always took part in before moving away; the Hampstead Carnival was one of those events. This year I was able to bring my 5 year old nephew out to one of the many ride nights and it was great to see how little the Fireman's Carnival has changed, perhaps a perspective that only one who has been away for too long can appreciate, but you all did a great job! Glad to be home!!

Webmaster response; Why? Both units are still serviceable. When the predetermined replacement date arrives be assured both units will be replaced.

Site looks outstanding and is easy to navigate. The retro pics sure due take a lot of us back in time. I am hoping to have some more retro pics for our Assistant Chief to look over and possibly get on the site. Great job Dickie.
